Mrs. Norton. When first. Beloved Iti vanished hours the Blind Roan sought thy love to gain they said thy Cheek was Bright As Flowers new freshen d by the summer rain they said thy movements Swift yet soft were such As make the winged Dove seem As it gently soars aloft the image of repose and love. Try told me too an eager crowd of woofers praised thy Beauty rare but that thy heart was All too proud a common love to meet or share. A thine was neither Pride nor scorn but in thy Coy and Virgin breast dwelt preference not of passion born the love that hath a holier rest Days came and vent a thy step i heard pause frequent As it pass d Ine by a Days came and went a thy heart was stirred and answer d to my stifled sigh and thou didst make a Humble Choice Content to be the Blind Man s Bride who loved thee for thy gentle voice and owned no Joy on Earth beside. And Well by that Sweet voice i knew without the happiness of sight thy years As yet were glad and few thy smile most innocently Bright i knew How full of love s own Grace the Beauty of thy form must be and fancy idolized the face whose loveliness i might not see of Happy were those Days beloved 1 almost ceased for Light to Pine alien tji rough the summer Vales we roved. Thy fond hand gently linked in mine. Thy soft go ii night still sweetly cheered the unbroken Larne its of my doom and thy Good Morrow love endeared the Sunrise which returned in gloom at length As years rolled swiftly on Uliey spoke to me of to Iii a decay of roses Mill thy situs Oil theek gone Anile on ringlet is turned to Grey. An then 1 blend the a Iier unless eyes which co Iii not feel the nor watch beneath succeeding skies thy withering Beauty faintly fade. I saw no paleness on thy Cheek. No lines non thy forehead smooth a til still the Blind Man heard thee speak. In ascents made to bless and soothe. Still he could feel thy guiding hand As through the Woodlands wild we ranged. Still in the summer Light could st anti and know thy heart and Voicu unchanged. And still beloved till life grows old Well wander Neath a genial sky and Only know that we Are old by counting Happy years gone by for thou to me Are still As fair As when those Happy years began,.�? when first thou Cam st to soothe and share the sorrows of a sightless Man old time who changes All Bolow to wean men gently for the grave hath brought us no increase of to. And Lea ves us All lie Ever gave for i am still a helpless thing whose darkened world is cheered by thee and thou Art she whose Beauty s Spring the Blind Man vainly yearned to see construction was a Little like that to the private boxes of the new York opera House to say nothing of our own rather handsome uniforms had not a bad effect As we entered. At the top of the staircase we turned to the right and stopped in an anti chamber decorated a la Louis Xiv to give our cards to thre officials who were seated up the rear. He is a remarkably handsome Young Man not More than Twenty five years o a with Well Cut whiskers and Mustache Vichich however like his hair Are rather too Light. He wore the handsome uniform of a lieutenant general which fitted him Well. He addressed Iii in English which like his father he Speaks remarks at a table and who posted the names in their j Bly Well. He asked me if this was my first visit ledgers. This done we entered the first room called since the last revolution the Galerie Louis Phillippe. The intervals Between the windows were filled with has reliefs respecting events of the life of Louis Phillipewithout stopping we passed into the yes Marechaux a vast Square Saloon occupying the Centre of the Palace having a vaulted ceiling of great height which occasions the great cupola that looks so hideous from the out-1 and conveyed them Elvis offal pastas the Carria a sideband a railed gallery for spectators extend Ives Qoku came up.

The crowd dispersed through the rooms in the opposite direction Down the great Star can a i must take breath after my Story particularly As i must give an account of the court Ball which took place two Days ing quite around the room at a considerable Heig it from the floor. This room contains full length portraits of the living marshals of France each portrait being removed at the death of its original.

His two bet a halves live in perfect Harmony having one talk in common but occupying separate lodgings Are both very Young and comely. One of theft is particularly Prettythey yield passive obedience to his vigorous intellect and expressions which partake the character of his mind. His words Are very few but apposite. At the conclusion of the talk i have sketched his lofty Mien and Manly bearings. His address is courteous and affable and his smile is witchery. Like most indians he is fond of a jokes a the opinion that Savages Are always grave being erroneous. His shake of the hand like every Thirft from him.

Oceola is generally ambitious and like other indians revengeful a he Lex Talionis being their bloody code so that his conduct like More civilized men is mad up of mixed motives having just enough of the Salt of patriotism to preserve the character from the taint of corrupting selfishness.

Defence of widows. Quot the newspapers have lately indulged in libels on widows some of these libels have been extracted from or. Hayley s essay on the question Quot which is the More a for a wife a widow or an ?&Quot Haley with More gallantry blood etl father was of course a half Breed and Oceola is therefore a Quarter blood or found Here a mob whose prevailing Scarlet uni i u i i a Quot i Afu.

We next made out the russians in handsome uniforms with count Pablena at their head a grim Musta chord Soldier of fifty wearing a perpetual frown on his brow and the uniform of Boney s time with White Tiff has and Suva roes. Diane generally. When conversing on topics agreeable to him his countenance manifests More the disposition of the red Man. There is a great vivacity in the play of his features and when excited his face is lit up As by a thousand fires of passion animation and Energy. His nose is grecian at its base and Virold be perfectly Phi Dean but that it becomes Sliffe Tiv arched.

The due de Frias was there Wii i some spaniards. He is an elderly Man with Grey whiskers and a very pleasing expression of countenance. He tie most repossessing of All tiie ambassadors. Though the lips Lous from the intense which seem Ever building up within him. About his brow care and thought and toil have traced their channels anticipating on a Youthful face the havoc and Furrow work of time. To those who have known Oce tila Long his name does not appear like a Sun is int but As the All human life. The proportion therefore in which either of these essentials Are developed or cultivated determines the cast of the character i and the complexion of the life and that in which All Are so harmoniously blended that neither predominates but each is regulated and influenced by the other is necessarily the most useful and the happiest. It is the Oulu which makes the Wise the reflective the lofty character but. Without feeling or fancy it also produces the scheming and Subtle intrigue the morbid visionary the cold and selfish a assist. It is feeling the nourished of All the pure and holy affections which sisterhood. Common Justice however requires that a writer who could so easily sacrifice Epe Rienche sense feeling and humanity As to compare the weeping of a widow to the Quot moaning of a Hyena Quot and and old stiff necked Maiden to Quot the pliant Virgin Wax Quot should not pass with impunity. Either Hayley s mental vision must have been sadly perverted or he wrote contrary to i own impressions in writing so Derol by of the widows and to judge charitably we May sup Fiose he did the Lajter to provoke discuss tin rather than instruct his and a Whatman with his five senses unimpaired with a reasonable mind and a sound body Ever yet compared the natural affection the i Al ability the Candor the is every body present was in some opening fruit of Early promised uniform or other.

Presentation at court. Through the kindness of a Friend we Are enabled to Frimsh our readers with the following interesting letter from Paris written by an american gentleman now in that capital which gives a very graphic and amusing account of the pomp and ceremony connected with a presentation at the court of the citizen King. The whole affair is sketched with entertaining minuteness and will Well reply . Extract of a letter Daed Paris feb. 3d, 1837. Every body in Paris is Siff Fering Froni an epidemic they a a All la Grippe Quot a very unpleasant hut Seldom fatal disorder. And i have both had ii i Felt the first symptom a pm in in the pigs on the night of the presentation of which by the by i must give you in account. There had been reason to think that on account of the attempt on the King s life there would be Rio Thingan court in the Way of gaiety. For several weeks no notice had been taken of the present Ilion list that had been sent in hut last week we to peeved a message from general Cass requesting us to in Etc this hotel at a Given hour on the Quot subject of the presentation. Some five and Twenty of us accordingly made our App aft Elfr a and Irene made acquainted with the communication received from the Palace naming monday even int 23d ult. For the presentation. In the evening mentioned we assembled each in court dress embroidered coat Chapeau and a Orti at the general s magnificent rooms and at eight precisely drove off in a body to the Tuil eries. As there were thirty or forty of us it took some fifteen minutes to sit Down so that when and i entered Ihu peristyle of the Palace a Moisig the last we find the whole body waiting on one Side the servants a Viig ranged off opposite with the cloaks. In a few moments the Glass doors at the foot of the grand staircase were thrown open and Pended by three Ushers in Black we moved slowly up the stairs. Tie profusion of lights the polish of the columns statues and Sfa us poured Ryalls a i of White Marble the Elevation of the ceiling a Fidilio and great a end eth of the Staci Roaix who in Pendi Cular. In about five minutes the Kins had progressed re re Quot it it Ali Down the Rhi to of Home visible to us. He seemed to make two or three bows to each individual and after a few words to pass on to the next. His Back being turned to Yards us we could not fee Bis face. He was preceded by the ambassador of the nation whose subjects he was receiving the ambassador naming each individual in turn and closely followed by three aids whose business it seemed to be to step Forward should there happen to be a Fieschi an Al bean or a Meunier among the presented. The King of the French was a Hort thick and ill dressed in the uniform of a colonel of infantry that is a Blue coat with red facings and shapeless red browsers without Boot straps. There was no embroidery about Vij Blondel Gadsen sole commissioner at the treaty of Payne s Landini Oceola rendered Good service at the head of thirty or forty warriors posting himself nearer to tie co Cmel s position than the other indians and s ii in he was More like the a White Man than they. He did not Sirn tie treaty then and there made nor Ditl he refuse so to do. The fact is he never was asked to subscribe his name thereto being at that Lime but a Tusten Gge and of Little note. This treaty Mast not be confounded wih the subsequent agreement that Oceola finally Sia Ned and into which he is said to have Ahmed his knife when nor i-.-. Possession think feel Quot and imagine because it is inseparable from their natures to do so a but of what Roal Benefit to themselves or others thoughts feelings and fancies they Sec life and they feel it in All its varied experiences but of its poetry a of All which redeems it from the sensual and the imperfect a they know and perceive but Little. But there Are others who do not so regard nor pass by the experience of life what feel that eve by thing which Appertains to that sacred and mysterious Boon is related and connected to some thing beyond the present. Therefore it is that the changing seasons the successions of months and years of Day and night even the passing a Way of an hour Are to them not merely As divisions of time but the sources of Refl cuon Emo calle.1 on for his signature. The no go citations at imaginings of a Strong and Fame Payne s Laudin where in he time of Tuc Kanhee i sympathy resembling that which we feel in Mathia or the ground mole Warrior chief of the Mic Suky Tribeat that Date it was not him and indeed no ornament hut the Star of Theka own of Powell is Coton Mather save of Roar legion of humor. He carried on his left Arm his eternal White fringed Chapeau in a manner Peculiar to himself. You May imagine that among so Many Gay uniforms he Cut no very Brilliant figure. As the were last in the line which of course returned to the Point where it commenced in the a Salle in Trone Quot he was some fifteen or minutes fighting his Way towards us. I had made up my mind to return each salutation of the King by a profound Iii ligation by Way of showing Liim that the americans possess by nature the m umers of the court and i had accordingly reserved space behind my heels for my evolutions hut by the time the Royat panache had reached my left hand neighbor the line had gradually Barteil up so far that my legs a touched the dais behind me on which is placed the throne. His majesty with a countenance full of smiles and As red As own coat Collar bowed to your Humble servant in turn and said Quot Lam extremely Happy of i see you if i had made my salutation As profoundly As i hid intended i should have placed my Crown in the Royal stomach so close he stood to me. i made hut a moderate it ii i Haft on. Lee then Laid Quot it gives me pleasure to see so Many americans Here this evening Quot making another Bow. As Etienete does not permit me to speak to the King unless in reply Ami a i could not think of any reply hut would seem super flu a i addressed to majesty i replied by a second inclination. He then bowed once More by Vay of finishing with me and your Humble servant Maile Pys prof Jund a Bow As he Well could without bringing his. Of relic add a Contact with the Royal nose the King spoke English. Next came the Queen a delicate nervous looking woman of some flt a Ray five years of ago with very Light hair her youngest daughter Marie Hung on her Rig lit army she was a pretty girl enough of perhaps fifteen or Exteen. The Queen asked in French Quot have you been Long in the country i ans tiered about two Mouths Madame Quot following her a Short distance came Madame Adelaide the King s sister an old Maiden of fifty with her we so the Ohler Princess Clementine who must be nearly out of her teens. This pair bowed without a peaking. Quot the Utike of of la and boo of the King brought or Williams in his Magnolia that Quot the whole country was soon to be set on fire by the rapid motion of a Windmill in the hand of one Oceola acted As agent for Mic nope who is an imbecile in reducing to subject ii it a the Macasu Kies who Are not Only the most numerous and powerful but the m st desperate and Insi Hordin ale tribe 13y his boldness and Energy he always succeeded in bringing them in to receive punishment for the offences committedlatteily he would beg them off and finally went Oyer to them As one of their chiefs. The United states of Icera As Well As the indians All looked out to Accola to secure offenders knowing his Resolution and . And for this purpose As. Well As retain the Semins Les within their limits he has taken moff pm ins and endured njord fatigue than any four of the indians put together. He is of Elp rated and upright character Antwan of kindly disposition till put in Irons converted to Gall the milk of human kindness in his bosom roused his fiery indignation unquenchable but by blood and excited him to deep seated male revenge. Oceola s agcy and that of his lie ii tenant Tom in Mathia s death and his killing Gen. Thompson with the Rifle presented him by the general militate against the favourable estimate of his character. But that All his Good feelings Are not utterly eradicated is proven by an incident in the interview with general Gaines command. On that occasion Oceola anxiously inquired after lieutenant John Grahame. On being in firmed Towt he was wounded Oceola stoutly Denielt it. When ii died Why he was so positive that Grahame was unhurt he Rpp Lieck that he had impel a timely ordered his people never i0 molest that Young Man and knew no one would dare disobey him. None should and live. It was then admitted that Lieut. escaped in Juryj though his brother had been wounded at which admission of Eola tire lately Joyed. It seems that Powell a a Little drug hip a to whom i Dieul g. Was Kindi Ami had presented with frock in which the Young girl who grew very fond of Iii always insisted on being dressed when she perceived Lieut. G., for whom she often looked out coming to visit her. Oceola s motive in sparing Lieut. Was gratitude for attention to his child which endeavoured to Jepy by teaching to Iran Lang a the for Comuni Ning with a cherished and valued Friend whose presence brings to us a mingling of pleasant and Mournful memories of buoyant and irrepressible Hopes and sad and tender associations. To such As these each Day hath its own life Quot sounded by a dream a penetrated a guessed Quot yes How Little does the world know of the Many characters of which it Hinks itself Unali red 11 judge How Many High and glorious in nights How Many glowing and spiritual conceptions of Beauty How Many quaint and Brilliant fancies Spring up and float through the minds of some in moments of retirement or amid the blessed ministrations of nature and plead for a Fuller and More perfect development and again How frequently without any traceable cause some vision of the strange and shadowy yet not altogether unfamiliar world will Flash into the imagination and thrill the heart and we seek in vain to know Quot whence it came or Wither it goeth Quot something we know not what Quot touches the electric Chain Quot and our whole Boily vibrates with a new and renovated Imp use. And in the a not or course of society How Many Are there Olio veil under a quiet and or4ili� Quot Quot a exterior noblest and most fervid affections whose hearts Are filled with Pas situate yearnings and aspirations for the love and sympathies of their kind which from a shrinking sensitiveness or the bitter lesson of disappointment Are cherished within its own secret is it Well that with so Many these varied expressions and Revca Lings of life should pass a Way thus unnoticed and unimproved Golf is it Well that so much of Whir i life is Madei up should vanish into uselessness and Quot into the nothingness a if forgotten feelings Quot and with so Little beneficial effect upon the character. That the seasons of our sojourn Heie which Are redeemed from the Ordinary toilsome pursuits and vanities of the world by visitations of lofty and creative thoughts of Good and pure emotions of sudden and pleasant ii Mcnies kindled perchance by a a spark from the flare of undying memory or the recurrence i f tree insured associations by a casual incident or unknown .cau8ei8 it Well that they should sink into oblivion Liko the rest unmarked and leave no Trace of their existence no it is not Wal he the prompting of reason and the Constitution of our natures assure us it is not and in saying this i would by no Means attach an Undine importance to Tjit trivial i tents or exd Inaiya Imp in Ion we Hihl up the fat Pic a a of minnow that class of noisy impertinent character killing ladies. Most of those antiquated Dames owe their isolated state to their Pride or Folly or both to a perverse disposition an Idle vanity or an unbounded disposition to conquer Many. But alas after the Many Battles that youth and Beauty have c to conquer the Quot lords of the creat Iott Quot the poor old maid i left at last to take a Knave or a. Tool a get Veo Uon ii us Nee a Uicker. 1 consider an Oil mat a a Ike the lower in the fable that disdained the hand of the Gardener till the Sim scorched and withered v away while the More willing and Irr vely plants Trio widows grew and flourished. If i were asked who is the most useless member of society i a Quot Ifould without hesitation answer an old maid. If it Una tried who is tie midst. Inquisitive Quot and envious i should without hesitation say. That of Adam s sons and daughters i know non More so than an old mail. And old maid deteriorates daily a widow s interests and usefulness exist till her death. She is never out of Date because her generous heart is Ever open to the common feeling of humanity and her sphere of usefulness terminates Only with her life. The greatest proof that can be Given of the superiority of widows Over old , is the facility with which they get married and the reason is obvious. A Mati with Little penetration will soon distinguish Between what is affected and pompous it is utterly impossible for an old maid to possess the can for kindness and affection of the Widdow she has never had her feelings awakened nor her sympathies acted upon and therefore All her Good qualities lie dormant in her a susceptible . The widow s heart is yet warn with the soft expression of conjugal affection and consequently sympathizes More easily with the distresses of humanity. I might compare the heart of the widow to a piece of Good soil where cultivation been Only neglect Eil suddenly from the death of its owner while that of the old maid is a sterile Rug Geil wilderness that mocks the efforts of Man to improve it and defies every Hope of cultivation when a widow is address etl by a gentleman she considers More the qualities of his mind than the weight of his purse but when an old maid makes advances for at last driven by desperation she opens the Battery of her ingenuity upon the first Simpleton who admits it she consults her Comfort ease and Pride More than those Ali ties that insure happinesp., and she scrutinizes the Man s wealth More than his mind. Widows Are less selfish than old maids. I never knew an old maid marry a penniless Fel Low while i have known hundreds of widows hand ail Fortune upon the object of their Choice thou arh possessing nothing but a Good Namea Bunei ii. Western of Ihen a gentlemen we Are Happy to observe Are now ill our City on their annual or Semi annual visit of business they Are Ever Welcome and will is be greeted it yith the smiles of their friends in Market Street. A?.a cd syst of men gentlemen have some peculiarities by which they can be distinguished by the Eye of a keen observer. They Are Iio Weyes a class of men such As our country might be proud to exhibit to Ropo As a specimen of intelligent independen Iii self relying republicans. Accustomed to an Active and tolerably laborious life they Are generally Athleo it no Well formed. Possessing Etnigh of the world s a ear to feel comfortably Independent they Bear themselves in a manner that shows no disposition to cringe to any tic whoever he May Bei and by travelling much and mixing with a Good Deal of intelligent strangers they acquire a ease of manner and a Quot modest Assurance Quot which Stamps them As Vinen and they Are mostly to Tang or Midi Lerager men and probably possess As much clergy and perseverance As can be Jound in any class of men in the world. We should be Quot glad to see a few it muted of those gentlemen take up their residence Vith us a Little of their Energy and Enterprise wot old do our City no Harmpai� mar.
